Tomorrow marks the release of melodic hard rock band Sevendust’s ninth studio album Black Out The Sun, which is the followup to 2010’s Cold Day Memory. In anticipation of this release, we got the opportunity to do a one-on-one chat with singer Lajon Witherspoon to discuss the album, touring with Coal Chamber, Lacuna Coil, and Candlelight Red, the 1999 show with Metallica in Detroit, and more. We also got to ask if Witherspoon had ever encountered any racism during their career as well as Lajon’s love of horror. You can check it all out below
Metal band Sevendust have announced a Mar. 26th, 2013 release date for their ninth studio Black Out The Sun, which will come out through their own 7Bros. record label. The first single, “Decay,” will be released to radio and available for download at online retail outlets January 22, 2013.
Guitarist Clint Lowery told Guitar World, “There’s a dark turn to the whole thing…in a lot of ways, it’s your typical Sevendust record.” Guitarist John Connolly described the new music to Revolver as having “…a darker vibe…but there’s still plenty of melody. It fits right in with Animosity, Alpha and our self-titled album. Lots of heavy stuff and some more mellow moody songs as well.”
The first time I saw Sevendust was at the Metallica, Ted Nugent, Kid Rock show in Detroit on Millenium Night. Anyone else at that show? READ MORE
